Nexstar CT Sister Channel on DirecTV App for Streaming

Now that the agreement with Nexstar has been completed, will that allow the addition of the other Nexstar channels that are currently unavailable for Streaming in the app? For example, in the Hartford/New Haven, CT area. Channel 8 is the Nexstar-owned ABC station and Channel 59 is the sister MyNetworkTV station and only on Satellite. Will that get added to streaming soon?

Nobody here knows DirecTV's plans for carrying additional channels. But I don't think this renewed agreement with NexStar will change anything in the near term.

Hi, williamfgray. Not all channels in your package may be available to stream using the app. It also depends on the version of the device. Please see How to watch the DIRECTV App | DIRECTV Customer Service & Support for compatible devices.  I've sent you a private note also to discuss it more. Margie, DIRECTV Community Specialist
